Dubai/Sharjah/Abu Dhabi - Exhibition

Walls and Margins

Barjeel Art Foundation

21 Oct 201501 Feb 2016

‘Walls and Margins’ looks at works of art, which tackle the effects and consequences of established barriers, both physical and ideological. Such obstacles often lead to the exclusion from conventional society of various subcultures, minorities, and groups that deviate from the established norm. The exclusion and isolation, however, is often experienced on an individual, personal level, as is the case with many immigrants, refugees, exiles and people that are explicitly marginalised due to their religious or gender-related convictions. This exhibition aims to highlight that many of these dividing systems are conscious human constructs, while ideas of us and them, inside and outside are often fabricated.
